Description

  The present invention relates to a new hinge lid pack containing smoking articles such as cigarettes.

  Cigarettes are typically sold in hinged lid packs having a lower box portion and an upper lid portion hinged to the rear wall of the box portion. When the lid part is closed, its front, side and rear walls form a corresponding wall extension of the pack's box part. In use, the consumer pivots the lid portion back about the hinge to open the pack, thereby gaining access to a wrapped bundle of cigarettes held in the box portion. In order to remove the cigarette from the bundle, the consumer must first pull the wrapping paper, typically a folded sheet of metal foil or metallized paper, and remove its upper front portion. As a result, as soon as the consumer removes one cigarette from the hinge lid pack, the metal foil or metallized wrapping paper surrounding the bundle will have any protection against, for example, entering or leaving moisture. No longer provide to the remaining cigarettes.

  A cigarette pack with a hinged lid also typically includes an inner frame or collar mounted inside the box portion between the front and sides of the box portion and the packaged bundle of cigarettes, at least a portion of which is a box portion Projecting into the space covered by the lid portion in the closed position. A central notch is typically provided in the front wall of the inner frame to allow the consumer to more easily remove the cigarette from the hinge lid pack in the open position. However, even with notches, tight packing of cigarettes in the bundle can still make it difficult for consumers to remove cigarettes from the box portion of the hinge lid pack, especially when the pack is full There is sex. This is the case, for example, in a 20-cigarette conventional hinge lid pack in which the cigarettes making up the bundle are arranged in three parallel rows in a nested 7-6-7 collation.

US-A-5, 277, 304 was designed to accommodate more than 20 or 25 cigarettes containing two individually packaged groups of cigarettes and at least one collar secured therein. Cigarette hinge lid packets are disclosed.
US-A-6,742,651 discloses a cigarette carton with a hinge lid that houses a group of hinge lid cigarette packs.
Cigarette or other smoking article hinges that not only provide enhanced protection and thus improved freshness for the contained smoking article, but also allow easier consumer access to the contained smoking article It would be desirable to provide a lid pack.

When the hinge lid pack of the smoking article is overwrapped, the top wrapping paper can include an opening tape.
The invention is further described below by way of example with reference to the accompanying drawings.

The cigarette hinge lid pack according to the first embodiment of the present invention shown in FIG. 1 is a right-angled parallelepiped and generally has a lower box portion 2 and a lower box along a horizontal hinge line 6 extending across the back of the pack. And an upper lid portion 4 hinged to the portion. The lower box portion 2 and the upper lid portion have the same general configuration as the box portion and lid portion of a conventional hinge lid cigarette pack having right vertical edges and right horizontal edges.
The lower box portion 2 has a front wall 8, a right side wall 10, a left side wall, a rear wall, and a bottom wall. The upper lid part 4 likewise has a front wall 8a, a right side wall 10a, a left side wall 12a, and a rear wall 14a, which are closed from the open position of the box part 2 and the lid part 4 in FIG. When pivoting about the hinge line 6 to a certain position, it functions as a correspondingly numbered wall extension of the lower box part 2 respectively. The upper lid portion 4 of the hinge lid pack further extends from the upper wall facing the bottom wall of the lower box portion 2 when the upper lid portion 4 is in the closed position, and from the front wall 8a of the upper lid portion 2 to its inner surface. And an inner flap 16 fixed to.

  As shown in FIG. 1, the lower box portion 2 includes three steps of cigarettes, that is, a lowermost step 18 adjacent to the front wall 8 of the lower box portion 2 and a lowermost step 18 adjacent to the rear wall 8 of the lower box portion 2. An upper stage 20 and a central or intermediate stage 22 disposed between the lowermost stage 18 and the uppermost stage 20 are mounted. Each stage 18, 20, and 22 includes a row of seven cigarettes (not shown) wrapped in a folded sheet of metal foil or metallized paper. The hinge lid pack shown in FIG. 1 thus accommodates a total of 21 cigarettes arranged in three separately packaged stepped parallel rows. A line of weakness 24 (shown in phantom in FIG. 1) provided on the sheet of metal foil or metallized paper extends around each stage 18, 20, and 22 near the top of the seven cigarette rows. The line of weakness may be formed by punching, nicking, punching, stamping or otherwise squeezing, cutting and / or weakening a sheet of metal foil or metallized paper before folding. it can.

  As shown in FIG. 2, each stage 18, 20, 22 is a folded back of the wrapping paper from the top end of the folded metal foil or metallized paper wrapping paper on the top of the seven cigarette rows. A self-adhesive outer label 28 extending to the top of For simplicity, the self-adhesive outer label 28 has been omitted from FIG. The outer label 28 is provided with a non-stick tab 30 that protrudes outwardly away from the packaged row of cigarettes. In use, the consumer separates the folded sheet of metal foil or metallized paper along the line of weakness 24 and removes the upper portion of the wrapping paper from the cigarette row at that stage. Pull. The outer label 28 in an advantageous manner has the folded end of the top of the wrapping paper until the upper portion of the wrapping paper is removed by the consumer to access the top of the seven cigarettes wrapped therein.

  The cigarette hinge lid pack shown in FIG. 1 further includes an inner frame 26 having a front wall, a right side wall, a left side wall, a right rear wall flap, and a left rear wall flap. The inner frame 26 is mounted in the lower box part 2 between the lower box part 2 and the three steps 18, 20, 22 of the cigarette so that the upper part is in the upper lid part 4 when in the closed position. Extends from the lower body portion 2 into the space covered by. If necessary, the inner flap 16 of the upper lid part 4 is in use to help hold the upper lid part 4 in a closed position where the lower edge of the wall abuts the upper edge of the wall of the lower box part. There may be known holding means cooperating with the wall and / or further known holding means provided on the inner frame 26 (not shown) of the hinge lid pack.

In FIG. 1, the line of weakness 24 extending around the lowermost stage 18 is visible by a central notch provided in the front wall of the inner frame 26. Preferably, however, the location of the line of weakness 24 in the sheet of metal foil or metallized paper in the lowermost stage 18 is such that the line of weakness is positioned below the lower edge 32 of the central notch in the inner frame 26. It's something that consumers can't see when they open the box.
To form a cigarette hinge lid pack of the type shown in FIG. 1, seven cigarette rows are formed and packaged by folding metal foil or metallized paper around each row in a conventional manner. . The seven separately wrapped rows of cigarettes are then collected into three groups that are longitudinally offset with respect to each other to form the three tiers 18, 20, 22 shown in FIG. Are fixed to each other. The three steps 18, 20, 22 are then inner frames fixed to the three steps 18, 20, 22 using an adhesive in a pocket on the packaging wheel that can be indexed between several stations. 26 with. Prior to insertion of the three steps 18, 20, 22 and the inner frame 26, the pockets form the box part 2 and the lid part 4 of the hinge lid pack shown in FIG. 1 when folded around an appropriate score line. Lined with layered cardboard blanks containing various panels and flaps. As the wrapping wheel indexes from station to station, the layered blank paper is folded into steps around the three steps 18, 20, 22 and inner frame 26 of the cigarette and hinged in a known manner using conventional machines. Form a lid pack. The inner frame 26 may be suitable, for example, by applying a suitable adhesive to the outer surface of the side surface of the inner frame and / or on the inner surface of a blank panel that forms the side wall of the box portion of the hinge lid pack when folded. By applying a suitable adhesive, it can be fixed inside the box portion 2 of the hinge lid pack.
